This marvelous structure is being restored to its once glorious use as a theater for traveling acting troupes and musical acts. The building's proximity to the former railroad depot brought in not only fancy-dressed ladies and gentlemen from Aberdeen to see the entertainment but also carloads of scenery and props for the traveling acts. A dedicated group of volunteers under the name of O.P.E.R.A., Inc., the Organization of People in Ellendale for Restoration of the Arts, is raising funds and getting their hands dirty rebuilding the opera house.
Ellendale is located in south central North Dakota, 40 miles north of Aberdeen, S.D., on US Highway 281.
